    I'm interested in the answer to your question too. I just ordered one for my p-bass kit from SAGA. The neck it came with was twisted so I ordered that one from S_Mac. I also ordered bridge, tuners, pick-ups and all the electricals because the Saga parts were all such crap. So I'm basically paying a MIM price for a home-made bass. I hope it will be fun!

    I thought Jazz necks had a 1 1/2 inch nut width. That neck has a 1 5/8 inch width.
  3. That's a modern P bass neck, otherwise known as "B" width. Older P basses (and some American Vintage ones) had "C" width, 1 3/4" necks, but chances are yours is 1 5/8". Jazz basses have "A" (1 1/2") widths, as oldrocker pointed out. So find another one, I guess. To answer your question, though, necks like that one should fit without mods. Just make sure they're 34" scale, and 20 frets, unless the final frets (21-22/24) overlap the body.

    One word....Warmoth.

    Their stuff kicks arse.
  5. Ive just noticed the neck I wanted was a common P neck, and I want a J neck. Heres one that could fit:


    I think Standard Fender necks are standarized so it will fit with ease, isnt it? so thats the neck, what do you think?

  7. Yeah I know but they are more expensive I think. Those I was looking for were about 125$. I wouldnt want to spend more than 100 euros or so.
